i should get paid for this...

oh wait, i do get paid for this.

i had a discussion with my dear friend charlie today about how we should get paid to read blogs because we have excellent taste in blogs. it's true. we like blogs. and we have great taste. and i'm wasting time. because right now. i'm getting paid to blog. WHAT? yes, because i'm sitting at my desk writing this not becuase i'm home in my pjs on this dreary day reading blogs like i would like to. this is how i spend most of my work days. don't tell my boss.

anyhow. i pulled this off of today. way to cute not to share.

i know i've sworn so many times that i would actually get back to sewing so i've semi given up saying it. truth of the matter though, when i was sick last week i did find myself roaming around benjamin franklin (yes we still have one of those up in here) and i got some super sweet fabrics. i'm planning on starting with curtains for our bedroom (i will notify you with pictures if/when this actually comes to be) and i want to cover our ugly pillows as well. we have an orange one and a red one. who does that? they match with nothing. maybe that's why i like them so much. like them enough to cover them up that is...

Eclectic Living Room with Pops of Color eclectic living room

anyone who would like to take over my living room and change it to look like this, i give you full permission.

in the mean time i think starting some sewing projects to make my life somewhat like my fantasies are desperately in order.

so we just moved...

across the hall. big step, i know. but seriously. we have a washer/dryer. that's right folks. i'm living the dream.

here's the thing. the entire apartment is one color. one cream yellow/dirt color. so i'm looking for some inspiration. i'm looking for some decorating/sewing/crafting ideas... and i'm looking for some presents. bring 'em on!

i'm mildly obsessed with my bedroom at the moment. i want a headboard. i want a grown up bed. and i  want pretty walls and a room that i don't want to leave. the living room can be next so keep your eyes open but i've wanted a new bedspread for a while and i think a cover for my current brown and blue mess is going to be first up on my sewing project list. the following were all taken from i love them. if they wanted to, i'd totally let them redecorate my whole place.

there isn't anything i don't like about this room.
i love the headboard. the details. the colors.
i LOVE the wallpaper. good. all good.

this one's a little festive for my taste but i love the detail and attention it gets. i want that.

i love this night stand. and the wall color. and the light.
i'm mildly obsessed with green.

this one i added mainly for the wall color. that's
kinda what i was thinking of. i like how our current
color keeps things bright and the sun looks amazing
on it but ... maybe it's too matchy?

this is a little dreamboaty for me but it fits in with the
current colors of the room. peaceful. calm. pretty.
i want a little more pizazz.

this room i could not stop staring at. i think i'm in love.
i love the detail and lines in the bed. i love the waves.
i LOVE the coloring. and contemporary. cleaness
of it all. i'm not sold on the wall color. but it fits.
ok. that's it for my dreaming for now. hopefully i'll be able to check out some fabrics tomorrow and therefore be able to start stuff up again. i've been lazy. super lazy. i haven't even finished my knitting! i'm such a bum.
